The autumn leaves of red and gold

My camera can't do it justice, but I couldn't resist more pictures of my backyard. The leaves are more beautiful this year than I've ever seen them and they just keep getting better. I don't know if the drought has made the colors more pronounced and richer than usual. It doesn't matter. I'm just enjoying their breathtaking show. The woods seem to be on fire,but it won't last. They're falling fast and when it starts raining tonight, it will bring down most of the rest.

What a BEAUTIFUL sight to behold! Gosh you're so lucky to have that scene in your back yard!!! People drive for miles to see colors like those. And your chooks look so happy poking around in the grass. LOVELY!!!

Thank you, Amy! We do enjoy our "little house in the big woods". You're pretty lucky with all the nice views that you have, too. Maybe we should do one of those vacation swaps sometime. One thing for sure--we wouldn't have to worry whether our chooks were being cared for properly! They're staying on our only patch of green grass. David hasn't had to mow in weeks. We're supposed to get rain tonight, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

As much as I dislike autumn as a harbinger to winter, it is a VERY pretty season. Lovely pictures.

Thank you, Fannie! The only thing I like about winter is sitting in front of a roaring fire and sipping a cup of tea while I read a good book. Oh, and wearing sweaters!
